Mud Vein. What is there to say about Mud Vein? A lot. But I won’t say much because this is a book you should go into blind, expecting only Fisher’s trademark dark and twisted perspective on life and love.
What I will say about Mud Vein is that it’s not for the easily triggered or faint of heart. Depression and self-harm are featured heavily throughout the book. The main character is plagued with destructive thoughts based on the screwed up life she’s lived. A turning point in her life, whether it’s good or bad is for you, the reader, to decide, is her rape and events thereafter. Everything in her life hinges on the moments after, which become the basis for her character.
These are tough topics that are not dealt with lightly in the book, so if you aren’t a fan or can’t handle them be sure to stead clear of Mud Vein. If not, dive right in because you will not be disappointed.
